Rolling Stones to Re-Release ‘Sympathy for the Devil” Film
Pleased to meet you. Have you guessed what The Rolling Stones are planning next?
The band is celebrating its 50th anniversary with the release of a restored, expanded version of Sympathy for the Devil, a 1968 film by famed French director Jean-Luc Godard.
The film included a candid in-studio look at the Stones–Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Brian Jones, Charlie Watts and Bill Wyman — creating a new song at London’s Olympic Sound Studios in June 1968, along with session keyboardist Nicky Hopkins, Marianne Faithful, Anita Pallenberg and actor James Fox. The film will be released on DVD, Blu-ray and digital video on October 5, with special viewings scheduled from September 13 through September 19 the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
The rereleased edition of Sympathy for the Devil will offer a variety of extras, including a director’s cut of One Plus One; a documentary titled Voices about the making of the movie, and more.
